HOW TO GET RID OF REDNESS LEFT BEHIND?red mark
Posted 12 September 2009 - 12:41 AM
Ive been on tane for almost 4 months now. While my acne is much much better, has cleared up heaps. My face has gone from very bumpy back to the old smooth in this time.
However, this experience has left me with many red marks. My derm has told me sun exposure and tanning beds will only worsen the scars and make them more obvious in the long run.
My derm - very good derm believes that the redness will slowly go away over the next 1-2 years. He believes that all products, laser treatments, abrasions etc are all wastes of money, any oils (bio oil, emu, etc) all clog your pores and will result in more acne so all there is really is time.
While i do believe him, i really dont want to.
HAVE ANY OF YOU USED PRODUCTS THAT ACTUALLY WORKED FOR YOU, not that you've heard about THAT ACTUALLY WORKED.

Olive oil does have a comedogenicity level of two, though, meaning that it could potentially clog some people's pores. I've had no issues with that, myself, but in the thread, "Something that actually works. Will fade red marks in days!!!", I generally recommend that people do a spot test with it for a while to see how their skin reacts before attempting to use it as a treatment.

this method should remove the dead skin on your face, and slowly, over a couple months(time varies) itll fade the red marks.
